Does the Wal-Mart 360 version of Transformers Fall of Cybertron still include the download of war for cybertron?


I don't think so because the ones that had it had a sticker on the box. Also online there's the vanilla $25 version along with a "stickered" $50 version.

I'd get them ASAP if you want them.

Don't let the employees fool you at WM as far as prices go, the 1 walmart I went to they didn't want to answer pricing questions so I had to find a scanner, if you can find games in the case and it's locked, ask for the game, I was able to grab Red Dead Redemption GOTY for 15 on xbox 360 and God of War Saga for 15.

This of course isn't new information, just more of a reminder to those wonder why they can't find the games they want, I was able to find everything I was looking for, if you know where to look.

Of course if I wasn't satisfied with this walmart, I could of gone to any of the other 4 we have in town. Aside from the gaming, got the 10 dollar tripod I was looking for at the end of my shopping, most stuff like that was thrown in customer service area in buggys (only need it for certain stationary shots, no movement, investment for a project I got sunday). Debating on if I want to keep the 1 tb toshiba hard drive I got for 59. Anyways, be sure to check the buggys around the store!

I returned to Walmart to PM the MSP from Target's card. I forgot to do it when I was already there. The lady did the override, but she seemed to have difficulty the first time doing it. I hope she activated them correctly. I don't have a 360 yet, so I can't try to activate them myself. For the people that did the override, do the points work for you? And is there any other way to check, besides activating them on an Xbox?


You don't need an xbox to redeem your points. If you have already made a gamertag/account on xbox.com you can go there and apply the points.

Denied at Target?


Yep. The guy was a real dick about it, too and said that the ad was a misprint and there was nothing he could do.

Question for those that went to walmart.

I was wondering if the 360 version of 007 Legends and Angry Brids Kinect were part of the deals there or not.

Unlikely. At least from my experiences, games were running low fast. Saw plenty of parents re-entering the line to buy more games for their kids.

If a cashier at Target gives you a problem ask for the manager. They're suppose to honor whatever's on the ad, error or not. If you don't like confrontation just try another cashier or even customer service if available.

If I were you, I'd get my ass over to Target before they're gone. Not only are the 1600's working but some Targets fucked up and rung up 2400's for $10.

Looks like GameFly's PC game sales just went live. Picked up Torchlight 2 for $11.99, that's $14.99 plus 20% off. That's cheaper than what Steam is currently offering, and the CD key activates on Steam as well. Sooo... good deal!

Went to Wal-Mart to check out the leftovers 4 hours after it started. The games pallet was completely empty save a few random games here and there. I was pretty upset until I got to the registers at the entertainment center and saw four or five carts full of games that had been tossed in. I gladly dug through the carts and picked up X-Com, GoW Saga, Uncharted 3 and LittleBigPlanet 2. I also bought all of the Harry Potter blu-rays (except for the first movie, couldn't frickin' find it) and the Lord of the Rings blu-rays. Pretty happy. Loaded up on games and blu-rays for my new PS3.

So with a few of my target points I picked up
Rock Band Blitz
Lush - Sweetness & Light for that (rock band store really needs more shoegaze)
Bastion
Peggle
Geometry Wars
Castle Crashers
Magic 2013 & its expac
Oct car pack for Horizon, plus the two free cars
Bully

Everything but Bully was half off, Bully was third off and cheaper than used. So basically i paid 25% for the rest and still have tons of points for Durango and what should be a slow spring and summer for xbla outside of state of decay.

BTW the Xbox mobile site is excellent on windows phone, but the 360 dl queue is mysteriously unlinked.

So that was a mixed bag 2nd trip. Decided to stop at BBY to turn $200 in credit into a prepaid visa. Got a couple of Blu and Kindle cards also. Wait in line and then when I try to pay with my GC I get denied on the Visa. She tells me no GCs for GCs (while we are both staring at the Kindle cards but I said nothing) and a manger walks over and says it is new corporate policy. We that sucks donkey ball now that I have $1,000+ in credit there.

Target was almost a complete bust. Got there about 2:30 and it was not worse than a Sat afternoon. Go to electronics and the 1600 point cards are empty. Decided to do a one over and found 4 of them laying on top of some Wii stuff. They rang up at $10. 4 hours earlier the same cards needed a PM. Anyway, I got 9 total which should be just fine.

So Justice have been done lately regarding the deflated MSP cards.
Guess Justice will be done in the next round when the XBL marketplace inflates with all your 'stealing' MSP haha I was thrilled scrolling all pages with x 1600 MSP card, the cashier of Target and poor PMed Walmart.. etc

My haul (with a little help of 2 of my friends 1-online an 1 in-store from the US doing their 'justice'):
- Skyrim $25 Amazon
- AC Revelation $8 Amazon
- 3 month gold card $12 Amazon
- Max Payne 3 $10 Walmart (lost to K-mart deal)
- Red dead redemption GOTY $15 Walmart
- Dead island GOTY $8 Best Buy
Total dam lit more than $70 which is nearly 1,500,000 Vietnam Dong.

Thanks to Viber, the internet and especially you, CAGers!

ps: hopefully next few hours awaking, there'll be confirmed Borderlands 2 $25 (amazon Lighting deals), Batman AC GOTY $20 Amazon. oh I totally forgot Forza Horrizon $15 when my friend was at Walmart. Will try to get it by MS online store.

Cheers from Vietnam!

Looks like Spec Ops: The Line dropped to $20 for PS3/360 on Amazon.

http://www.amazon.co...pd_rhf_ee_p_t_2

Now to wait for the AWD prices to adjust to possibly get a few bucks off, though at the moment AWD only has 1 PS3 copy and 5 360 copies. Either way not a bad alternative for those trying to avoid the Walmart madness. Might be worth keeping an eye on some other games for those Friday-exclusive sales.

My Target was dead. No line, still plenty of games. Able to pick up Arkham City GOTY.

Probably should have picked up some point cards but oh well. Try walking over in the morning. Got unspent Live points as is.

Edit: Never mind, the point cards were a picture misprint? I'm not one to ask for a price match on stuff like that so the good news is I can sleep in and shower late.
